Rolls VP529 overview

  • 1Description

The Bellari VP549 from Rolls is a phono preamp with RIAA equalization curve. A recording is made with the low frequencies reduced and the high frequencies boosted, and on playback the opposite occurs. The VP549 phono preamp can be used with a turntable to deliver a flat frequency response during playback of records and tackles low-frequency noise, cartridge load capacitance, and attenuation of the signal level.

This phono preamp makes listening to your vinyl collection more rewarding. Equipped with RCA inputs that connect to your turntable and RCA outputs that connects to your amplifier, the VP549 is easy to set up and features a ground terminal to tame hum and a 3.5mm stereo headphone/line output jack to monitor audio or connect it to an amplifier. The VP549 is bold, yet has a surprising attack that will take your rig to the next level.

Connecting the VP549
You have an input that connects to your phonograph, and an output that plugs into your preamp or amplifier. Use the ground post to connect to your turntable's ground connection.
Rumble Filter
AKA "subsonic filter" cuts very low frequencies (below 20 Hz). The purpose of a filter like this is to get rid of annoying frequencies that disrupt the turntable's sound quality. A good rumble/subsonic filter should be inaudible, meaning you cannot hear when it is on or off in the program material you are listening to.
Cartridge Load Capacitance
The VP549 has three settings: 120 pF, 220 pF, and 330 pF. Set the switch in the position you feel sounds best to you. The difference might be very slight, but it is there. Most cartridges come with a capacitance load recommendation in the spec sheet for the cartridge.
Trim and Gain
Attenuate the signal level up or down. It is not a volume control, meaning that signal will still be present even when the level is turned to the lowest point (in this case, -10 dB as labeled). If at half-way up you are at 0 dB output level, then all the way up you will have +4 dB more gain, and all the way down you will be at -10 dB down from a reference of the middle 0 dB.
